Old show baddie Michael Mancinci is getting heavily involved in not one, but two storylines, which can only be great, and his ex-wife (Josie Bissett) is moving in next episode as the new landlady of the complex. Even better, they've apparently signed Heather Locklear to reprise her scene-stealing, show-saving role from the original series. The only Melrose Place casting news that could have made me happier would be if Johnny "Drama" Chase got a role.
Also, I love how just every scene with Ashlee Simpson's character ends in her making the "look at how damn crazy I am" face right at the camera. That shit is what Melrose Place is all about.
